Im hoping to pick up a Fire for the GF. she just recently got to where she wanted a kindle or another e-reader of some type. she liked the kindle at $100 or so, but wasnt too thrilled with the screen size. I told her to wait a week, and the Fire was announced. the price is a bit more, but it does al...

Thanks for the link. Decent predictions, I think. for the 32" non-name brand at $250, seems very likely. In this weeks Target ad, they have a Vizio for $299 already, so $250 for BF should be possible. but, is Vizio considered a non-name brand anymore? in terms of volume, they are one of the big...

I am a fan of Canon, but the D60 is quite tasty looking for the price. and the Nikon VR lenses are some GREAT glass. If I had your stated requirements, that and the Canon XS or XSi would be at the top of my list. I think Target has had the XS with kit lens for $450 within the last week. BTW, BMW>For...

I am also in the market for a T2i this year. I havent been really searching for deals as of yet, I have seen a few pop up, but these are usually packages with a photo printer, a bag, and some gummi bears, and have coupons/rebates to make them a deal. Last year costco had a deal on the T1i in a packa...

ok, speaking as a professional screen printer here, I have some input. preference of 50/50 or 100% cotton is very subjective. some insist on one, some on the other. yet in many cases, people wont know the difference if you dont tell them. there are also differences in how a cotton shirt is made. rin...

OK, I am going to be positive, and say YES. the secret sales have been where its at for the last few years, and no doubt will be this year as well. a bit of concern is getting the SS info in time to finalize plans. elle, the secret squirrel sale has been going on for like 2-3 years now. not a long t...

bwahahahahaha, just awesome. thank you, this pep talk was def needed. and it couldnt have been done in a much better manner. he is right though. the ads are lackluster, but they were last year as well. hardly anything that I am in the market for, at any sort of a deal. we all know that BB will have ...

as of now, prolly not. I am waiting to see what the secret sales are like. as I have said before, your mission plan needs to be flexible. if target, or however unlikely, CC, has some deals, we could go there if BB does not pan out. with the move, I really am in the market for 2-3 new TVs now. I was ...

be careful. not all data plans include tethering. though it may work, if your provider determines that you are doing so, they may charge you more/per kb, or cancel your data plan. also, not all data plans are the same. some are unlimited, some have a "soft" limit, others a def limit. confi...

since I have the evdo, I am set, no need for the distant connection.
but yes, a yagi is fantastic. I have used one before, as well as a j-pole, on my icom F4 handhelds.
